In this new work, authors based at one of London's leading centres for the study and treatment of HIV present a comprehensive visual introduction to the disease. Topics covered include epidemiology and pathogenesis , HIV virology (including management of ART resistance), HIV and the immune system, therapies for HIV infection and their side effects, as well as treatment of the numerous systemic and metabolic diseases that accompany, or result from, HIV infection such as cardiovascular disease, liver disease, neurologic disorders, opportunistic infections and malignancies. The authors also address the sensitive issues surrounding conception and pregnancy in couples affected by the disease.

This book has achieved 'delivery' of information in a clearly written text, accompanied by a fantastic set of illustrations. This book is perfectly pitched at clinicians in infectious diseases and genitourinary medicine as well as GPs and A&E doctors. It combines up to date scientifically accurate information with a stunning collection of illustrations which detail the range of clinical presentations of HIV - related disease.
